I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Talented people.
- Truthworthy.
- IBM culture and the people that are here are very consistent.
- Has breadth and depth in terms of industry sectors IBM operates in and range of work (services, software and hardware).
- You can leave a very well rounded person.
- Job security.

Cons

- Average pay and very average benefits.
- Poor bonus scheme.
- Experienced people are not valued. The technical experienced persons must become salesman or be ill treated and leave eventually.
- Struggle to communicate all the range of things going on across the company.

Advice to Management

Its the workers on the ground that actually generate revenue for IBM. We are primarily a people/brain power business. This is what we sell. They need to be managed far better in terms of end of year ratings, remuneration, bonus and benefits.
